resectoscope

[re-SEK-tuh-scope] a long, thin instrument with a light and lens on the end that can be passed into the urethra. It is used in transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) as well as for removing some lesions in the bladder, uterus, or urethra. It allows the surgeon to look at the inside of the urethra, the bladder, the uterus, and some of the prostate; a wire loop on the end can be used to remove abnormal tissue. See also bladder, prostate, transurethral resection of the prostate, urethra, uterus.
